37' project sailboat

I am looking at a project boat that a friend is offering to sell me for cheap but he doesn't know anything about it, and I am to far away to go see it at the moment and I am trying to find out who made it. it was built in Japan back in 68, if anyone recognizes it let me know who built her, she is solid wood construction with a teak wood interior uses a Westerbe Diesel 50 horse
inboard engine

Will-

Those are pretty lousy photos to try and figure out what the boat is. Do you have any more information on it, like beam, LOA, etc? Also, what kind of rig does it have—ketch, yawl, sloop, cutter?

BTW, project boats, unless they're in basically decent shape to begin with can be far more expensive to "re-fit" than the same boat in ready-to-go shape. If I were in your place, I'd be pretty wary of taking this boat on. In my experience, cheap boats are often very expensive boats.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

It depends on what your definition of "project boat" is, and what your comfort and skill level are.

Personally:
- any real structural issue and I would walk away.
- make an inventory list, note what is there AND what isn't. Cost to replace?
- find comparable boats for sale. What advantage exists for this boat over the others?

Project boats can be expensive both cost and time wise. But they can also be quite rewarding. Just make sure you do your homework.

It never hurts to look.

I have seen this boat in person and would not take it if it was given to me.
